  2. 1kW Diesel Burning Man Portable Hybrid Electric Power System using Catalytic Fuel Ignition Technology

    SBC: Automotive Resources, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "The Army has indicated significant need for lightweight, heavy fuel engines for use in a wide variety of battlefield missions. The Catalytic Ignition System (SmartPlugTM) developed and patented by Automotive Resources, Inc. (ARI) promises to fulfill theArmy's "One Fuel Forward" requirement without the need for replacing the gasoline engine with a new engine design. ARI had demonstrated the abilit ...

  3. 28GHz-43GHz Nadir/Near-Nadir (~70-90 degrees wrt horizontal) Low Probability of Intercept Radio Frequency Direction Finding/GeoLocation Capability

    SBC: SPECTRUM MAGNETICS LLC            Topic: N102118

    In this program, we propose a radio frequency (RF) direction finding sensor for low probability of intercept (LPI) RF radar system. This sensor consists of a dielectric lenses focusing system and an innovative focus plane detector array (FPDA) developed by Spectrum Magnetics, LLC (SM). The focusing system project the RF signal onto its focus plane. A novel FPDA based on emerging spintronic and met ...

  5. A Handheld Sensor for Amorphous Coating Integrity Evaluation

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: SB093002

    In the current SBIR program, AlphaSense aimed at developing a novel, handheld, non-destructive sensor to evaluate the integrity of Naval Advanced Amorphous Coatings (NAAC) in real time. In phase I, we have proven the feasibility of using the cavity perturbation technique to detect different types of defects present in thermal-sprayed testing coupons. Specifically, we optimized the sensor probe des ...

  8. A Novel Noninvasive Microwave Sensor for Quantitative Assessment of Degree of Sensitization in Marine Aluminum Alloys

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: N09T022

    In phase I, we have proven the feasibility of using the microwave cavity perturbation technique to detect and quantify DoS in marine aluminum alloys. We implemented an alpha version sensor prototype, characterized and validated its performance using ASTM G67 method. We also identified methods to further enhance the sensor sensitivity, so that DoS in the low (a few mg/cm2) to moderate range can be ...

  9. A Novel, Low Cost and Handheld Microwave Sensor for the Detection and Evaluation of Incipient Composite Heat Damage

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: N131013

    Due to their high specific strength and light weight properties, polymer matrix composites (PMCs) are increasingly used in a wide variety of military and civilian aircrafts. The mechanical strength of PMCs can be dramatically compromised when such materials are exposed to various heat sources during operation and maintenance. It has been shown that PMCs can lose up to 80% of their mechanical stren ...
